to send jeff flake to the senate and he'll help get america back on track. >> that was a new ad for arizona senate candidate jeff flake, featuring mitt romney. the gop initially thought it had buttoned up the race to replace republican senator jon kyl, but in the days leading up to the election, democrat richard carmona, a moderate democrat with puerto rican roots has turned this into one of the most hotly contested races in the unto can. one reason? he is highlighting the difficult and troubled relationship with arizona's changing demographics. according to the national association of latino elected and pointed officials, latino turnout in arizona is expected to jump by 23% this year. a boost that could help carmona become the first democrat to represent arizona in the senate in nearly two decades. joining us now from phoenix is the man himself, dr. richard carmona. dr. carmona, thanks for joining us in this home stretch. i know you have a lot of work. i wanted to talk to you first about the contours of this race, which a lot of republicans thought was basically buttoned up, th

by republican senator-elect jeff flake from arizona. he, by the way, is a fierce spending cutter. nobody in this country wants to cut spending, it seems to me. the u.s. is on the path to its fifth straight $1 trillion-plus deficit. that is incredible. former congressional budget office director douglas holtz-akin is up next to tell us how to avoid it. try running four.ning a restaurant is hard, fortunately we've got ink. it gives us 5x the rewards on our internet, phone charges and cable, plus at office supply stores. rewards we put right back into our business. this is the only thing we've ever wanted to do and ink helps us do it. make your mark with ink from chase. if we want to improve our schools... ... what should we invest in? maybe new buildings? what about updated equipment? they can help, but recent research shows... ... nothing transforms schools like investing in advanced teacher education. let's build a strong foundation. let's invest in our teachers so they can inspire our students. let's solve this. i put away money. i was 21, so i said, "hmm, i want to retire at 55." and b

, this is the electoral map, jeff flake's race in arizona was one of the few contested senate seats that was in reach for the republicans, but it appeared the republicans actually did reach. but today the democrat in that race, former surgeon general richard carmona, kind of essentially hinted at not conceding that race. his campaign today, saying they might have declared defeat too soon. they are now watching the vote count in arizona very closely. as of this weekend, arizona had not counted roughly one in every four votes that were cast in the election. still, half a million votes left to count and a bunch of close races in the state are hanging in the balance. this botched election in arizona, which is still not over, and the remarkable, potential unconcessioned u.s. senate race by richard carmona, may ultimately go back to this guy. >> as you know, 250 citizens of this valley, this state, came to me. asking me as the head of a law enforcement agency to look into president obama's birth certificate as released by the white house in april of 2011 on the official white house website. as we suspect,

in arizona. jon kyl's old senate seat goes to another republican, to jeff flake. also, republicans did not lose that other senate seat they might have lost in nevada, the old jon ensign seat that was given to dean heller. it stays with him. and while president obama carried 28 states last time, he carried 26 or 27 states this time, depending on how florida goes. that means republicans did lose everything else, but got back indiana and also north carolina. so it was not a totally hopeless night for republicans. also, hey, remember the crazy thaddeus mccotter seat in michigan, where thaddeus mccotter screwed up and they had to run this reindeer herder, santa claus impersonator for the seat, a guy whose own brother says he's crazy. that guy won. the shirtless reindeer guy won. so the republicans have him. big picture in the house, thanks mostly to redistricting the republicans were not in danger of losing the house, and they didn't legal cause it, even though the republican majority appears to have shrunk there. and even though they did get the reindeer guy. but in terms of, honestly, of

not support the guy who won, they supported the democrat shelley berkley and arizona senate jeff flake won by five points. arizona women picked the democrat, picked richard carmona. governor's race in indiana, republican mike pence was elected, won by four points. if you asked women, they did not pick him. he lost the women's voice by five points. if indiana had their way, mike pence would not be the governor of that state. women chose the democrat john greg. north carolina was one of two states president obama won in '08 and didn't win this time around. mitt romney won north carolina by three points this year but if you asked north carolina women, they prefer barack obama thank you very much. romney barely won the state overall because he had big enough numbers with men to make up for it but lost among north carolina women. they did not change their preference from 2008. they voted for president obama again this year. this might have happened in other states. we only had exit polling from 31 states, not 50. i think due to financial reasons. we don't know what happene

richard carmona and jeff flake. carmona did concede on election night when he was losing by six percentage points. as votes continued to be tallied, the carmona campaign is keeping a close eye on the count. he's been gaining in the tally and appears to have at least a distant shot at the seat after all. the most recent results show flake in the lead by 7 the,547 votes or about four percentage points overall. 2 million ballots were cast in the race. as of monday afternoon 170,000 early votes and another 170,000 provisional ballots had yet to be tallied statewide and we do know that democrats have a history in arizona of both overperforming in the early vote and overperforming in provisional ballots. of course how many of those will be legal ballots we don't know that question yet, but it's a tall order but not impossible. >>> it's only been a week since senator scott brown lost to elizabeth warren. but many are wondering what his next move might be if, for instance, his democratic colleague senator john kerry gets nominated to a cabinet post. he said kerry would make a great secretary of st
